, ten years, that will be hard sledding. paul ryan's didn't balance until 2040. >> we get closer to the sequester. >> the sequester. >> the sequester is coming? these automatic spending cuts. >> it is painful and hard to sell. >> the sequester is coming, we don't think we should ignore this. >> what do you think the party must do better. >> we have to stop being the stupid party. >> stupid is as stupid does. >> change the electoral college. >> the new plan for electoral votes. >> those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. >> we must compete in every state. >> this republican plan would divide them up by congressional districts. >> that is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> they're not giving up. >> they're about as popular as lice. >> stupid is as stupid does. >> what do you think the party must do better? >> what they say is no all the time. >> we all voted no. >> empire strikes back, was the best one. >> the republican party made an incredibly important promise this week. it is a promise i cannot believe that they made. the first time i heard about this p
from now. this bill says if you don't vote for the ryan budget, because we know the votes are on the other side of the aisle to pass the ryan budget, then we go back to putting the credit of the united states at risk. the last time the american people looked at the ryan budget, they rejected it overwhelmingly. do you remember the election of november just a couple months ago? they rejected those cuts in medicare, those cuts in medicaid, those -- the tax cuts for the wealthy. and yet all of this is being put back on the table by holding the debt limit hostage, holding the credit hostage, holding american jobs hostage. so if you don't vote for that budget, then they get to play with the debt limit again. they get to play with the debt limit again. we got big lists to make between now and then, folks. we have sequestration. we have tax reform. we have a budget to write. let's just get down to the business and do it. just do it. don't play with the credit of this country. don't play with people's pension plans. don't play with the interest rates of corporations have to pay to
and a new day. new today we are getting as well, former republican vice presidentable nominee paul ryan unleashing criticism of president obama as he is starting his second term. listen to this. >> i decided to not comment between the election and inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we are looking at here. what kind of path he was putting his administration on, and all of the statements and comments lead me to my he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. >> we will have more on that in just a moment. >>> also, a big week ahead in washington. hillary clinton set to step down as secretary of state this week and the gnat will hold a hearing on kerry to replace her. meantime in a new interview with the new republic president obama says gun control advocates need to listen to their opponents and understand and respect the tradition of hunting. he added that he enjoys skeet shooting at camp david. president weighed in on the dangers of football. they have been making headlines lately. he said if he had son he is not sure he would let his so
. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the next 10 years. it's our commitment to the american people and we hope the senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years. >> good evening. as the speaker said, our conference will look to vote on a measure tomorrow that will temporarily extend the debt ceiling so that we can see the senate actually begin to do its job. for several years now, i think it's about four, the senate has not passed a budget. and all we're saying is, if the president and the senate -- if this country needs to incur more debt, senate, please show us your plan to repay that debt. please show us your plan to control spending. it's about time that we come together, do our work, the american people expect no less. that's why we'll insist on the
huffington post" -- ryan grimm joins us. you write that the senate modestly occurred filibuster's. essentially, what did they agree to? caller: what they agreed to is something, a series of steps that will quicken the pace of legislation in the senate. there has been a battle raging for the last couple of years over how they would rewrite the rules of the senate this chamber. there were two separate objectives that slightly overlap. one is that progressive senators wanted a higher quality of legislation, it wanted more progressive legislation to be able to get through, and a requirement of getting 60 votes rather than a simple majority was standing in the way. for somebody like majority leader harry reid -- harry reid, it was the volume of legislation. he thought the chamber was too backed up by the number of bills. under the current system, it could take an entire week to get legislation through, even if it had a near majority support, because of all the different rules involving 30 hours a post- cloture time, and intervening day, another cloture vote, and a cloture vote before
flpresident oba and paul ryan have behaved this week about the issues of our time, the debt ceiling and budget. it seems like the president is still in full campaign mode. his cohort said they're going to engage his campaign infrastructure. >> they're going to set up. >> paul ryan is back to his day job. he's the house budget chairman and he's shown a lot of leadership. i was in williamsburg last week. there was no talk about retrenching and collapsing and giving in to the demands and turning back on their promises. there was great unity and they called the president's and harry reids bluff. they agreed with speaker gingrich when he said don't move the debt ceiling. sequester is the key. >> sequester is the key. it what his boss and president obama do not want. it would trim 1.2 trillion dollars, most of which would come out of social programs. however, if you were going to annihilate the republicans, would you choose to split the gop? in other words, i'm interested in the mechanics of this annihilation scenario. let me begin with immigration. the republican party is split on immigration. i'm
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote
the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat
ryan e. says that deep budget cuts, known as sequestration are likely unavoidable if the u.s. hopes to prevent a debt crisis. >> we think these sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. bill: jeff sessions republican senator out of alabama ranking member of the budget committee, how are you doing, senator and good morning to you. >> thank you, bill. bill: what do you think about what congressman ryan is saying there. >> it was a very serious statement that he made. i believe it's accurate. i do not believe that the house will eviscerate the sequester. 18 months ago we agreed to cut spending 2.1 trillion out of a $47 trillion budget, not nearly enough but it did -- made some changes in the right direction, and that can't be given up. the house has passed legislation that would prevent the disproportionate damage to the defense department and spread those cuts through other agencies and departments, some of which, most of which had none, and i think that is what we've got to do and got to work t
-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, thankfully, he did not want to offend the opponent. >> a good neighbor. >> so i had a conservative up bringing in terms of morals but not really what you would call a political upbringing. i did not think much a
. reporter: paul ryan, we are told, is working on a budget plan that would balance within 10 years. it is expected that patty murray's idea of the budget will be quite different. but the bottom line is a lot of people who say we need the budget with this debt of $16 trillion are going, will be glad to get to the table and work on an actual budget speech you we will see how it turns out. mike emanuel, thank you very much be one a fox news weather alert. extreme winter weather is gripping parts of the south. arctic air and freezing rain expected from arkansas to the north carolina and south carolina area. dangerous driving conditions. up to a quarter inch of ice can accumulate. people in the upper midwest and northeast are wondering when the cold will end. another day of bone chilling temperatures. we have our meteorologist here with the update. thanks for joining us, janice dean. reporter: that's right, cool air as far as the midsouth. ice on the roadways, the tennessee river valley, look at all that pink on the radar. it looks pretty, but it's not nice to drive in. north of that ar
, "politico" just popped up a story about how speaker boehner, with the help of paul ryan, turned around a conference that was ready to go off the next cliff. they wanted to shut down the government. they wanted to default on america's debt. at that williamsburg retreat, he walked them through what the consequences of that was, showed them polling about the blame that they would take for it, let them talk instead of imposing a solution on them. and very calmly, with paul ryan being the key salesman because of his credibility with conservatives, convincing them to go ahead with this three-month extension that joe, you say, is a smart idea. >> it is a smart idea. and this morning, you know, we were talking about chris christie being one of the favorites in 2016. "politico" this morning's going behind the curtain again with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of r
